What is it about the show that turns me into a big kid ! I love, I mean really LOVE IT, lol !
This year we decided to get there late in the afternoon so we could stay and watch the fireworks. The boys were uber excited about being at the show 'in the dark' and loved all the rides lit up.
The new ferris wheel is pretty flash, it has individual enclosed cabin type things so it makes for a more secure ride but has nowhere near as much character as the old one
There are heaps more rides aimed at younger kids so Jake and Lachie tried a few out, although they were still begging to go on the 'big peoples rides', lol
The boys also tried their hand at some nightime shots, lol !!!
Dinner was the biggest baked tatie I have ever set my eyes on, it was also smothered in butter, sour cream, coleslaw and cheese, they're all low fat aren't they ?

Took the boys to a playcentre this afternoon. Turned up at 2.45pm only to find a note on the door advising it was closing at 4pm. Oh well, at least the boys couldn't argue about when it was time to leave, lol.
Dot-to-dot books are the big craze in this house at the moment, as well as Snakes and Ladders - Buzz Lightyear style !
Had to add some artwork of Jakes titled "under the sea"
Dinner tonight is Spag Bol, the sauce has been bubbling away for 2.5 hours. YUM !

Boys had a terrific day with their nanny.
Was sorting through my photos and this pic reminded me of a beautiful lady I met via a forum. Thanks Lyn, it's over 12 months since you sent me these but they still put a smile on my face !

Dinner tonight will be spag bol or lasagne and salad. It all depends on how motivated I can get myself........

Dinner tonight is honey soy sticky chicken with mash taties and greens.
Honey Soy Sticky Chicken
Chicken pieces (on or off bone, whatever your prefer, I use breast pieces on the bone)
generous slurp of light soy sauce and sweet chilli sauce
crushed garlic clove
1/2 tsp five spice powder
1/2 tsp sesame oil
Place all of the above in shallow casserole dish, mix well, bake (180 fan forced) with lid on for 30 mins. Remove lid and bake serving side up for 45 mins (give or take depending on what size chicken pieces you are cooking)
15mins before removing chicken from the oven sprinke with sesame seeds.
